Availability: Ready to download

The moment you step into a farmers market you are enveloped in a swirl of colors, aromas, and sounds—brilliant orange squash, vibrant green beans, glossy eggplant, crimson crab apples, the spicy bouquet of hot and sweet peppers, ripe muskmelons. Tables are bursting with sunflowers, honey, and eggs. To your right, freshly fried doughnuts and steaming coffee; to your left, a The moment you step into a farmers market you are enveloped in a swirl of colors, aromas, and sounds—brilliant orange squash, vibrant green beans, glossy eggplant, crimson crab apples, the spicy bouquet of hot and sweet peppers, ripe muskmelons. Tables are bursting with sunflowers, honey, and eggs. To your right, freshly fried doughnuts and steaming coffee; to your left, acoustic guitar and beautiful flowers. But the local market is not just a place to immerse the senses—it is where communities come together and engage in an exchange as old as civilization. Minnesota’s Bounty is a user’s guide to shopping and cooking from your local farmers market, and it applies a practical, easy approach to creating a truly seasonal kitchen. Organized alphabetically by type of food, it encourages readers to scrap predetermined recipes and forget the long lists. Instead, shop with an eye for what looks best and what you are hungry for. With more than twenty-five years of firsthand experience and a deep knowledge of Minnesota farmers markets, seasoned cook and food writer Beth Dooley has suggestions and recipes that inspire simple, modern, and healthy meals following an ingredients-first philosophy, helping readers to be more confident and spontaneous both at the market and in the kitchen. Including a fascinating history of Minnesota farmers markets—with particular focus on the downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis markets—Dooley presents an extraordinary introduction to our markets and the region’s sustainably grown fresh foods. From a warming Coconut Curry Winter Squash Soup and Heartland Brisket to a summer’s meal of Minted Double Pea Soup, Lamb Burgers with Tzatziki, and Blueberry Lemon Ginger Sorbet, the guiding tenet of Minnesota’s Bounty is splendidly uncomplicated: take this book to the market, buy the market’s best offerings that day, then come home, cook, and enjoy.

    I received this book as a gift from a relative who lives in the North Country. Although I am not a frequent visitor to any Minnesota farmers market, I do visit my local markets religiously. I reread this book recently as I was needing apple recipes to put up a peck of apples from a local orchard. (I ended up making a delicious Apple-Cranberry Chutney from this book.) This book hits most every fruit that one could ever dream of (and possibly find at their farmers market) from the aforementioned ap I received this book as a gift from a relative who lives in the North Country. Although I am not a frequent visitor to any Minnesota farmers market, I do visit my local markets religiously. I reread this book recently as I was needing apple recipes to put up a peck of apples from a local orchard. (I ended up making a delicious Apple-Cranberry Chutney from this book.) This book hits most every fruit that one could ever dream of (and possibly find at their farmers market) from the aforementioned apples to pears and quince and strawberries. The vegetable section is even more comprehensive and includes recipes for your average veggies plus bitter melon, bok choy, fiddleheads, leeks, ramps, parsnips and sunchokes. There are also sections on cheeses, grains, and meat and fish. The final section is entitled "Market Essentials" and includes instructions for basic mayo, vinaigrettes, stock and a "spirited whipped cream." Obviously, Dooley also sings the praises of various Minnesota farmers markets as well as the benefits of shopping at them. I love a cookbook that includes menus and Dooley ends her book with "Farmers Market Menus" for every possible time of the year. I may be revisiting this book in November to copy her Market Thanksgiving with "Holiday Turkey with Cranberry Sage Butter," "Caramelized Brussels Sprouts," and "Pear Galette." I have also made Dooley's Balsamic-Basil Strawberry Jam and there is an apple bundt cake with oatmeal and yogurt that I will be making soon with the rest of those apples. You don't have to be from Minnesota to enjoy and learn from this book.

    My husband and I met Beth and Mette at the Sister Wolf Books Author Festival in Dorset, Mn. We had a delightful visit about cooking using MN bounty. We purchased a cookbook and thoroughly enjoy the content. You won't be disappointed. The photographs totally make the recipes shine! Like page 80, we had never heard of or seen Bitter Melon, there are photo's and great recipes AND a link to that National Bitter Melon Council (who knew!) The introduction says it all, "Hit the Market Forget the List", My husband and I met Beth and Mette at the Sister Wolf Books Author Festival in Dorset, Mn.

The introduction says it all, "Hit the Market Forget the List", head to the market find what is fresh and go home to create a farm to table meal! Very much appreciate the Quick Ideas section of the page. Quotes from growers, or market vendors. The photos of the Midwest Farmers Markets in action! This is WELL WORTH YOUR TIME!

    Gorgeous reference guide to what you can find at farmer's markets in the northern heartland. It no doubt will embolden me this season to try new things and help make use of what shows up in my CSA. Gorgeous reference guide to what you can find at farmer's markets in the northern heartland.
